Book review: Chris Mallin and Kean Ow-Yong, Corporate governance in alternative investment market (AIM) companies

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

This research monograph addresses an important yet relatively under-researched area. It does so by means of interviews with a small sample of AIM market participants and their advisors, and analysis of a larger sample of AIM company annual reports. The study provides a timely review of the general response of AIM companies to the Quoted Companies Alliance (QCA) Guidelines for AIM Companies (2005) report, and in particular how such companies have responded to the ‘lighter touch’ approach proposed when compared to that advocated in the Combined Code.
